after4ever (6635) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2010
draft at hudson public. pours a hazy coppery dark gold with a thin white head. plenty of sheeting lace on the way down. nice piney nose, very appealing, but not much complexity to it. creamy medium body with lively carb. caramel, toast, grapefruit, and pine on the mid palate. mild piney finish, some linger. very appealing and drinkable but not really very distinctive or imaginative.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 13, 2010
On tap at Barley’s Brewhaus in Shawnee, KS. Pours a crystal clear gold with a small, creamy, off-white head that leaves behind a solid sheet of lace as it recedes. The nose is a big floral and piny/citric hop front over a more subtle pale malt note. Medium-bodied and quite soft, almost creamy while on your tongue, it transitions to a solid tongue-squeezing bitterness at the finish. The flavor is pretty consistent with the nose: a lot of floral hops up-front with some citri-piny-herbal hops following along afterward and just enough pale malt in support to keep the hops in check. Quaffable wiith a nice lingering bitterness, this is a very serviceable IPA.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 13, 2010
22 oz bimber from Bevmo. Nice orange amber with pinky head to lace. Nose stinky pot smelling hints wrapped by citrus and mango and pine. Taste is big sweet pop with bitterness behind. Light in the mouth. Good taste, but not a lot of it. Your friends who fear the big beers will like this one. I like this one though, and I like the big beers. Sessionable.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Not the tongue buckling bitter that most IPAs have, this is a much more floral type. Nice malt base (kind of like 2 Below or Fat Tire) and nice grassy hop notes in the nose. Finishes clean with a nice back of the tongue resin.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2010
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a crystal clear, golden orange body with a dense, frothy, finger-width, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is a bit lighter than I anticipated. Some bright, very flowery grapefruit rind and fresh grass. A light amount of limes, peaches, and tangerines go with a very light amount of sweet caramels. Flavor is better with a nice hop kick. Not an overpowering amount of hops, but on the higher said for a lighter bodied IPA. Bright, flowery grapefruits, freshly cut grass, lemons, limes, tangerines, and a touch of toasty bread malt sweetness that keeps it nicely balanced. Finishes dry and smooth with a touch of sweetness and a floral hop aftertaste that lingers for a lengthy duration. Light body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice tasting, very fresh and balanced beer. A quaffable IPA.

Reid (2064) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2010
12 oz single. Average looking IPA.Light orange/gold with a good sized bubbly white head. Resiny, hop aromas,little herbal and lemony. Sweet lemon drop hopping, light malts balance..shortish finish for an IPA. Liked the palate..zesty and refreshing. Overall an average IPA on the lighter side of the style.

JW32Hoops (70) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Floral, floral, floral...right off the bat, that’s what I’m getting from the aroma and even taste. Love the color, pours a perfect translucent light copper. Not tremendously hoppy but it does have a decent bitter bite to it. Refreshing and tasty, this could be a pretty solid go-to session brew when I’m in the mood for a sweet, floral IPA.

shakespeare33 (203) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours a butternut blonde with a ocean foam that slowly dwindles down...the aroma is potent with turrets of pine and oak hops lacing my nostrils.. the initial hit to the palate is fuzed with a bitterness of hops, the taste solidifys the aroma.. spruce, resin, grassy hops that masturbate in unison with each sip....a bit much for my palate but I must say I do enjoy how crisp the flavoring is am surprised at how little of an aftertaste Im left with.. caramel can be sensed on the very back end... definite hop monster compared to its other lighter beers.. this is not an instant classic for me but still a decent example of hop chop blasted IPA
